Notes on the Judging

The judges reviewed 98 entries in the Idea Track, and 10 fully-coded applications in the Code Track.  The quality of submissions was very high, and selecting awards was no easy task.  The IT Division wishes to extend thanks to everyone who participated in the Mobility Competition, and looks forward to implementing many of the excellent ideas the competition has generated. 

For the Idea Track,  judging criteria were: value to Berkeley Lab, originality, and input of Lab community (via online rating process).   Entries were judged anonymously.   Under the rules of the competition, an entry in the Idea Track could not duplicate a previous entry.  Entries with different features or focus were permitted. 

For the Code Track,  judging criteria were: value to Berkeley Lab, originality, usability of application.  Competitors in the Code Track had the opportunity to demonstrate their application in person for the judges.

  1. I can't wait for any/all of these apps to start being used. There were some definitely some excellent ideas that really exemplify how things are done in a whole new technological arena. Especially the user facility apps. Those have an almost limitless potential.

    1. I believe at least one of them (ALS beamline status by SMS) is already in use. Also the EPICS middleware. Thanks for the comment.

  2. I think this was a fabulous competition! Way to go Team!!

    Can't wait to be able to test out some of these apps!
